Fun & Unique Supplies
This handy little iron is great for pressing small quilt pieces. It also travels easily for sewing & quilting nights and events that often occur within sewing circles. This works great with the Wool Pressing Pad (#5) as well ; )
2.) Bobbin Ring
This is a cool storage option for those rogue bobbins! Nothing bothers me more, ok maybe some things, than a messy bobbin case. This little guy helps keep those bobbins neat and in order. A super helpful gift for someone building up their sewing tools and studio, or those of us trying to organize and clean up our spaces.
Rotary blades go dull and they need to be replaced. Depending on how much sewing you do, you may need to do that quite often...which gets expensive. Those little replacement blades are not cheap!
This tool is used to sharpen your used/dull blades so that they last longer. Not only do you save money in the long run, but also end up tossing fewer blades in the trash as well. I am ALL about trying to "green" up my life. So this is on my wish list....
I think this is such a pretty, organic way to keep your needles organized. What can I say, I do appreciate a little bit of fine leather in my life. Mine are currently scattered all over the bottom of a drawer...which is not all that uncommon in the sewing world.
Pamper your sewing and quilting buddy with this fun, universal sewing gift. I know a few folks who will be receiving one of these from me this year....
These wool pressing pads are excellent and efficient tools to use with your preferred iron. I have read reports, and heard from trusted fellow sewers, that fabric does not slide around on this pad while pressing. This is super helpful when pressing tiny pieces, since holding them with your fingers is not recommended unless you want your fingertips scalded!
It also retains heat and allows you to press "both sides" of your fabric at the same time, eliminating the need to flip over and press the other side. Saving time is always good....particularly on the less fun tasks associated with quilting (like ironing!).
For those of you who have quilted, you know how much cutting is required. Those who have not....there is a LOT of cutting required!!! This rotating cutting mat helps to make that job a little less tedious and frustrating.
Instead of turning yourself or your fabric when making your cuts with your rotary cutter and ruler, you turn your mat! Genius right!!! Another great time saver...
Ginghers are the best scissors....really, I absolutely love mine! But they are not NEARLY this pretty. I mean, these scissors are gorgeous aren't they? Every sewer/quilter needs a pretty pair of quality cutting shears. At least that's my rule. These are on my list for Santa this year...
Sewing Machine Cases & Travel Accessories
This is another one of those necessities for sewing posse get togethers! A case is needed to secure the sewing machine, foot pedal, cords, etc for safe and easy travel. A great gift for a friend to encourage her to come sew with you. Or if you are not a sewer yourself, encourage them to come visit and make something for you while there ; )
This is a pretty, budget friendly option.
This set would be the perfect companion for a weekend sewing getaway! When I pack up and head to another sewing local for a weekend getaway, I have a literal car full of stuff! Bags for my machine, my projects, fabric, supplies, ironing board, serger, etc. AND a tiny little bag for a change of clothes, toothbrush and clean undergarments ; )
This set would allow me to coordinate....and not forget to pack that last tiny little bag. I have done that and it isn't pretty! A great gift for your quilting buddy, or break up the set and keep one (or two) for yourself.
Another pretty sewing machine case, but this one is on wheels. If you have a sewing buddy with a heavy beast of a machine from 1964, this is a great option for transport!
Does your mom, aunt or daughter belong to a quilt guild or sewing club for her church? This is a super handy tool for sewing and quilting on the go. A great gift any quilter, especially those who travel, would appreciate!
Quilting Books & Pattern Inspiration
12. ) Stripology Mixology by Gudrun Erla
A quilt book containing 13 quilt patterns utilizing various type of pre-cut fabrics. A great book for beginning quilters! Also includes 13 cocktail recipes to correspond with each quilt pattern. I mean, how great is that! Because a little bit of alcohol always make your projects look better ; )
13. ) Quilt with Tula & Angela by Tula Pink and Angela Walters
Another fun quilting book with awesome quilt inspiration from a few of the brightest and most popular modern quilters around. A comprehensive piecing and quilting book....
Quilt kits can be great for beginner quilters! Is your sister really wanting to learn how to quilt, but just unable to pick the fabric and take that first step? Or does your neighbor love quilting but unable to get to the store to pick out fabrics?
These quilt kits can be really great for certain folks. Personally, I LOVE to pick out my quilt fabrics and spend hours making the perfect picks!!! However, I realize that is not everyone's cup of tea. If someone struggles with choosing fabrics, these quilt kits are great and highly recommended!
It also takes some of the intimation factor out of that first quilting project. Most of the work of "getting" your fabric is done for you....which can a hurdle for lots of people.
Boxes & Subscriptions
15. ) Quilty Box Subscription
A monthly subscription box which includes fabric, thread, 1-2 notions or tools, inspiration mini-magazine and 3 patterns! The fabric choices are beautiful and include inspiration and patterns from featured artists.
A really fun idea, AND you can also purchase individual boxes if you are hesitant to make a subscription commitment I cannot imaging a quilter who wouldn't enjoy getting one of these boxes!
How fun is this! It's a monthly subscription club, part quilt along and part murder mystery. AND at the end of the year you have a quilt to remember the adventure. You can find out more about this cool project at Whipstitch Fabrics.
A fun, unique gift. Could also be a really fun group activity for your sewing posse! I'm inspired...
I love Pineapple Fabrics! They have really fun pre-packaged and themed fabric bundles available in different cuts and styles called Pineapple Packs.
Each pack has a name (ie. Diana, Fran, Carla) and comes with a free corresponding pattern. You pick your pattern from a group available for each type of fabric pack. It's a fun, easy way to try new projects and patterns with unique fabric combinations.
There is a project for just about everyone! And now they offer a monthly subscription as well. A great idea!
18, 19 & 20. ) ETSY, ETSY, ETSY
